Eight Gigs: New Found Glory
Tues., Nov. 17, 6 p.m., Ace of Spades, $27
Both New Found Glory and Yellowcard have been in the pop-punk music game for almost 20 years now and were backed by the same record label, Drive-Thru Records, in the beginning stages of their careers. Now NFG, recognized for its fast and energetic music heard in classic songs like “My Friends Over You” and “Hit or Miss (Waited Too Long),” continues to stay true to its pop-punk roots with its latest album, Resurrection, released last year. The eighth studio album proves pop-punk's not dead and is filled with songs reminiscent of the days NFG's music blasted from the car stereos and house parties of your youth. 1417 R Street, www.newfoundglory.com.
